In last week’s blog we mentioned the rumor that it was widely anticipated that OpenAI would launch a new search engine during their Spring Update event. While that didn't happen, OpenAI did unveil something just as exciting: ChatGPT4-Omni, commonly referred to as GPT-4o. In just a few days this new model is already proving to be a game-changer in the AI landscape. Here’s why this matters and what you need to know.

Why is this Relevant?
Almost all AI applications today are powered by major models from OpenAI, Anthropic’s Claude, or Google’s Gemini. Understanding the advancements and capabilities of these models can help you better leverage AI for your needs and streamline the performance of daily tasks. Feeling a bit lost with all the updates flying around? Here’s a brief overview of the latest that you can expect from each platform:
OpenAI’s GPT-4o
OpenAI’s latest language model, GPT-4o, is making waves with its improvements. According to OpenAI, this update brings several notable enhancements:
Faster Performance: GPT-4o processes requests quicker, making it ideal for real-time applications.
Improved Tone of Voice: The model generates more natural and context-appropriate responses.
Enhanced Visual Understanding: GPT-4o has better capabilities in understanding and describing images, which is particularly useful for applications requiring detailed image analysis.
Promising Initial Tests: Although the model is only a few days old, early tests indicate significant improvements over previous versions.
Sources like TechRadar have highlighted how GPT-4o’s lifelike interactions and witty responses are setting a new standard for AI. Likewise, users on Reddit are already discussing the potential revolutionary impact GPT-4o could have on education, making knowledge free and accessible for anyone with an internet connection.
Why GPT-4o is Better than GPT-4
Ever curious, off camera before filing my Minute Mastery I asked ChatGPT-4o why it is better than the previous model. Here was it’s written response:
Me: Hey ChatGPT 4o, what makes you so different from ChatGPT-4?
ChatGPT4-o: As ChatGPT-4o, I am based on the same underlying architecture as ChatGPT-4, but with some key differences tailored to enhance your experience:
Updated Knowledge Base: I have access to more recent information, with a knowledge cutoff in May 2023. This allows me to provide more current insights and data compared to earlier versions.
Enhanced Context Understanding: I have been designed to better remember and understand the context of ongoing conversations. This makes interactions more coherent and relevant to your needs, especially when working on extended projects or discussions over multiple sessions.
Improved Personalization: I can store and recall specific preferences and details you provide, enabling a more personalized and consistent experience. This helps me better align with your goals and preferences over time.
Image Capabilities: I have the ability to understand and generate images based on detailed text prompts. This can be useful for creating visual content or illustrations to complement the information provided.
Integrated Tools: I have access to a variety of tools like the ability to browse the internet for real-time information, run Python code for data analysis, and generate images, making me more versatile in assisting with complex tasks.
Refined Communication Style: My responses aim to be more engaging and user-friendly, with a focus on clarity and usefulness. This should make our interactions more productive and enjoyable.
Anthropic’s Claude 3 Opus
Not to be outdone, Anthropic recently launched updates to their Claude model as well. The new Claude 3 Opus boasts several advancements:
Enhanced Intelligence: Claude 3 Opus has improved in understanding and generating complex text.
Superior Writing Skills: The model excels in generating well-written and coherent content, making it a strong competitor in the AI space.
Google’s Gemini
On the other hand, Google’s Gemini model has not seen as many updates recently. This might be due to their launching their own Search Engine, Google SGE, which stands for Search Generative Experience. According to Google, their model still struggles with issues like hallucination, where the AI generates inaccurate or nonsensical information. Our tests at Adaptify SEO have shown that Gemini’s implementation is currently slightly lagging behind the competition in terms of reliability and accuracy.
